DUMBO stands for "Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass". It is a town on the edge of Brooklyn that is located under and between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge overpasses. You can take a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge (like they do in Sex & The City, ha!) and then take a shortcut to get to DUMBO, where are there are lots of unique local shops, restaurants, cafes, art studios, book stores and more. I personally love to visit powerHouse Books on Main Street, right by the Brooklyn Bridge Park. There is a cool little theater called Galapagos and a sugary smelling cafe called The Almondine nearby. DUMBO is also the setting of some Gossip Girl scenes. They show a peek of it in 27 Dresses as well!
